Abraham "Jack" Lincoln II (August 14, 1873 – March 5, 1890), was the middle of three children of Robert Todd Lincoln and Mary Eunice Harlan, and a grandson of Abraham Lincoln. It was claimed that Jack was much like President Lincoln.cite web |url=http://www.abrahamlincolnassociation.org/Newsletters/9-3.pdf |title=A Death in the Family : Abraham Lincoln II "Jack" (1873–1890) |accessdate=2008-09-21 |last=Schwartz |first=Thomas F. |year=2007 |month=Autumn |format=PDF |work=For the People |publisher=Abraham Lincoln Association ]

Jack died in London at the age of 16 from blood poisoning after infection set in following surgery in Paris to lance a carbuncle that had formed under his arm. Jack's family was in England while his father served as the last Minister to Great Britain, before the position was retitled "Ambassador". [" [http://home.att.net/~rjnorton/Lincoln66.html Robert Lincoln] ". part of an Abraham Lincoln Research Site. "URL retrieved April 5, 2007".] Jack had been in Versailles to study French in preparation for an entrance examination for Harvard. Before he died, Jack was moved from France to England on January 16, 1890, where he was to have been seen by the noted physician Dr. MacLagan. A second surgery was performed on February 27, 1890, though it gave no relief to the patient, who died six days later.

Jack was originally buried in the Lincoln Tomb in Springfield, Illinois; his mother later decided on burial at Arlington National Cemetery and Jack's remains were re-interred there in May 1930 near those of his father who had died four years prior.
